A man from Greenfield, MA was a big winner in the Massachusetts State Lottery. The fascinating part of the story is that it was from a losing ticket! Ramiro Buenrostro was one of four second-chance drawing winners in a game called “The Fastest Road to $1 Million.”

Ramiro took the one-time lump sum payout, which ended up being $650,000 before taxes. He was one of 675,000 people who the chance to be one of four people randomly selected for the cash prize. There were four $1 million winners, four $100,000 winners, 14 people won $10,000, 137 got $1,000, and 1,561 got a $100 check.

The way the second-chance tickets work is that you download the MA Lottery 2nd Chance App, join to be a Mass Lottery VIP Club Member, and then enter your non-winning scratch off tickets to see if you win.

The second-chance drawings are for six specific games: Billion Dollar Extravaganza, The Price is Right, Willy Wonka Golden Ticket, Mass Millionaire’s Club, Diamond Millions, and The Fastest Road to $1 Million.

You could win cash prizes, exclusive experiential prizes, and various merchandise prizes from the Massachusetts State Lottery.
